News and Current Projects

The Children’s Nature Institute proudly collaborates with many organizations in Los Angeles and beyond. CNI is currently involved with diverse projects and initiatives focused on environmental education and early childhood development.

Discovery By Nature: The Children’s Nature Institute is the proud coordinator of Discovery by Nature, a LAUSD-wide collaboration between non-profit environmental education groups. Using the Discovery by Nature website, teachers sign up for the class visits and field trips that work best for them and their educational goals. Providers work with teachers and each other to ensure that all the lessons overlap and complement each other. Students benefit from having more frequent, consistent environmental education, and providers benefit from greater exposure and participation in their programs.
